Mediatek bids for Apple modem slot

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2018-07-04
Mediatek’s 5G 3GPP modem, Helio  M70, claims 5Gbps speeds which sets a bar for Intel to reach if it is to retain its slot as the second source modem supplier to Apple.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is looking to drop Intel. The likely reason for that is Intel’s relatively slow modems compared to Qualcomm’s.

The Helio M70 is to be made on TSMC’s 7nm line and is due to ship next year.

Announcing the chip six months early is an indication that Mediatek has the Apple slot in its sights.

It is also a warning shot across the bows of Qualcomm in its long-running dispute with Apple. Apple is said to be aiming to reduce the proportion of Qualcomm modems it uses to 30%.
